[Xen-users] Bad vmexit (reason 0x31) with HVMMEM_access_w/x

while playing with tools/tests/xen-access I came across domU crashes
when I set a page permission to either HVMMEM_access_w or
HVMMEM_access_wx and the domU tries to read from the page. I would
expect it to generate an event that is delivered to xen-access, but
that is not the case. All other HVMMEM_access flags work properly and
deliver the event, including read events as well. It seems to me that
making a page non-readable for the guest but keeping it writable is
what causing the issue but not sure where exactly. The vmexit is
caused by a EXIT_REASON_EPT_MISCONFIG which is unhandled in vmx.c.

xl dmesg:

I'm running Xen 4.3 and the issue was present on both an i7-2600 and
i3-2310M CPU.

Can anyone provide some insight into what might be going on here?
